Mars Attacks

Back in the fragrant California spring of Berkeley from the winter snows of Yosemite and the Sierra, it is great to see my garden coming to life. This photo is a close-up of a peony bud on our tree peony unfurling. Of course, the peony is a beautiful flower when it opens. At this stage, I think it looks a little firghtening, almost like an alien life form.

Here are some stories showing the flowers from this peony bush last year: Peony Glowing, Fairly Abstract Peony, Peony Revealed, Peony Parade, and here’s my Peony set on Flickr. Strange what beauty this gangleous thing grows into!
